5.0 étoiles sur 5 Connecting architectural design with the rhythms of life 16 avril 2017
Par Al - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book sheds light in a subject that has been eluded by mainstream architectural and developing practices, but that curiously enough includes an element that is in the core of how we 'experience' architecture: The unavoidable overlap of nature's cycles and human activities.

As industrialization permeated culture, architecture loosen its ties to its surroundings, mechanical systems enable the capacity to keep spaces within comfort despite the outdoor environmental conditions. A by-product of that has been a state of deafness towards the dynamics an subtleties of nature.

The book makes the point that the quality of our lives can be enriched and enhanced by giving attention and integrating to the variations and conditions brought by nature's cycles into architecture, where change would subtly open possibilities and dictate routines that would make the journey or our lives more enjoyable and humane.

In addition, a design framework and case-studies are provided as a way to have a clear notion of how the aforementioned integration would look like and how it could be achieved.

A profound work that is imminently readable. Contains fresh perspectives for seasoned urban planners and architects and, at the same time, should be required reading for beginning students of city planning, architecture, and landscape design. From attention to the way humans adapt to their surroundings by migration, transformation, and metabolism, Knowles proceeds through the stages of land development in the USA from wilderness to metropolis, and the resulting rituals of living we create. He then addresses the question of increasing worldwide concentration of people within huge metropolitan nodes and offers a daring solution, based on his many years of university research, to the problem of reconnecting those lives to nature through the built environment. Deceptively simple, almost poetic. My only complaint is that the cover photo and title do not do justice to this book. This is not about single, stand-alone houses for the wealthy, as suggested by the cover. Also, I would re-title it "Ritual House; Ritual City" if I could, as the final chapters of the book address not only the single building, but how our buildings affect each other within our cities. Running throughout the book is a deep respect for nature and for the human spirit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Rhythms, Rituals and the Quality of Life 25 février 2006
Par ARCHITECT - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
RITUAL HOUSE is the latest book by Professor Ralph Knowles of the University of Southern California. Based on more than 40 years of research, the book describes how so much of the modern built environment has missed opportunities to reinforce powerful connections that people have with nature. Prof. Knowles provides examples of how designers and planners can and do improve the quality of peoples' lives by making direct connections to between the rhythms of nature and the rituals of human life. He talks about the importance of access to sunlight and natural ventilation in buildings, and provides specific design strategies to help . Ralph Knowles is internationally recognized for his important contributions to research in solar access and natural forces in architecture. Every architecture student knows of his work, and now he has written a book that the rest of us can understand. The text is easy to follow and does not require a degree in architecture. If you don't know if it is raining or sunny outside right now, you need this book. Think about how important this is the next time you are in your office breathing recycled air while you don't have any idea what the weather is like it is because you don't have a window and can't see the sun.

Read this book. You'll feel better. You might even be able to make small adjustments to adapt your own home or apartment to improve your quality of life. If you are planning to build, give this book to your architect.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 more than green by design 11 mars 2007
Par Marjorie R. Barlow - Publié sur Amazon.com

Ralph Knowles book has been a great help to my husband and me, as we plan a home for our empty nest. We are nearly 80 years old and wanting a house that is environmentally responsible. We also are deeply interested in integrating our lives, mentally-spiritually-physically-emotionally. A good home in rhythm with the world we live in has become a real focus, thanks to this book. We read it to each other in the early morning and become more awake and aware because of the ideas in Ritual House. So, we are including nature and the rituals we treasure in our house design. Thanks for a book with ideas and depth of soul.

I was a student of Proffeser Knowles in the late seventies. This book fleshes out much of the more technical work we did concerning solar access. It will help you, at least, understand the influences of technologies on our perception of or environment and how important our connection with nature really is.
